Solar Water Pumping in the Mkuranga District – Sepon Ltd. installed a 1.6 kW solar water pumping system at a farm in the Mkuranga District. The system supplies enough water to irrigate 10 acres of farmland. Before the solar system was installed, a diesel generator and 40 litres of diesel per week were used to pump water; a very expensive system for a 10 acre farm. The solar pumping solution replaced the diesel generator, enabling the farmer to reduce operational costs and hence increase the farm produce.
